Portland Skate Park
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
The ground beneath the Burnside bridge has been transformed into a concrete skate Mecca.
It has been featured in several skate videos in the past and continues to be Portland’s main skate attraction, even being featured in `Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater` video game. It has been gradually expanded to the entire area under the bridge. It features two concrete bowls (one affectionately called the `death bowl`) as well as several quarter pipes and corner bowls that reach vert. There is a spine and a half pyramid to the side and the entire park has good coping and high walls.
